I have a modest proposal. Fashion models should be required to become expert at dancing the Argentine tango before they ever put on one of those $25,000 dresses. The walk in tango is essential to the realization of that dance’s extraordinary beauty. Without that walk, the dance is not being properly done. The tango walk is a languid smoothness of turn that is made to be the recipient of a sigh from an admiring onlooker. When you see it, you see Buenos Aires, you see blue Mediterranean waters, you see a fresh salad with Spanish olive oil and a glass of dark Mendoza malbec enjoyed while looking at a view of a sun-washed sea and sailboats far in the distance. You see a woman walking toward what must surely be a romantic rendezvous, imagining for herself its glorious sensuous exchange.
I propose that with such a walk fashion models will look far more joyful, which surely will put them in a better mood, thus helping to sell that $25,000 dress.
